You may need a science GCSE for your chosen career e.g. teaching and nursing.

How will I be assessed?
The course will be assessed by exam only. There will be no controlled assessments.
Are there any special expenses?

What could I do next?
A GCSE in Biology is a good qualification for many other courses and is necessary for careers such as teaching and nursing. It may not allow you to progress to A Level Biology without an additional science GCSE at B or equivalent or above.
Entry Requirements: A range of D-E grades. Students who do not have English and Maths at grade C or above will be required to take these qualifications alongside.
